Everything that doesn't look like a concentration camp is good. Singapore and Clementi are great examples.

It would be creepy to live in some of those quarters, for example in Argentina and Ciudad real given above...
Some examples from Russia:

Me too, just a staging post.. Mostly the buildings like in the last picture are municipal and built for military men (in the town i live at least).

Absolutely fantastic photography of cityscapes with an emphasis on tower blocks mostly of London but not exclusively.

I hope they turn out nice. They are very common in British inner cities and suburban estates, but unfortunately they are not generally nice places to live.

There is a district in Nottingham (my home town) called St Anns which looks a lot like this; lots of these buildings either 2, 3 or 4 storeys connected together by walkways and sometimes raised walkways. Most of the old streets had been changed in the 1970s so some of the flats and complexes line alongside re-aligned cul-de-sacs and many are set away from the streets, behind another building. Unfortunately it's reputation is as a bit of a criminal's paradise. There have been very serious problems with crime and gang violence. And poverty. The houses are not of a high quality and people who could afford to leave left the area. There were boarded up properties everywhere although it seems to have improved in recent years.

The layout made the area fundamentally unsafe due to the number of alleyways and hidden courtyards. It's not so bad now but 10-15 years ago you would not travel through the area, although a lot of people still won't , and many taxi drivers still don't pick up or drop off in the area.

I hope these new ones in Ciudad Real are better designed! They look nicer I have to say.
